1. And... we're back. You'll notice that all of your images are back as well, as are our beloved emoticons, including the infamous :foo: We have also worked with our server folks and developers to fix the issues that were slowing down the site.

    There is still work to be done - the images in existing sigs are not yet linked, for example, and we are working on a way to get the images to load faster - which will improve the performance of the site, especially on the pages with a ton of images, and we will continue to work diligently on that and keep you updated.

    Hi Everyone,
    I found the forum through the Ebay seller advice thread and more recently through the Sam Hober appreciation thread. I have learned quite a bit about selling on Ebay from all of you all and have funded my tie addiction largely through that effort for at least a year. More recently I discovered the Sam Hober appreciation thread and placed my first order with them. I ordered a slate blue grossa grenadine and a Christ Church Duster, both of which have me waiting lustfully. I will post pics when they arrive.
    I am a Neuroscience professor in Dallas TX and have no need to dress semi-formally everyday but feel more comfortable in a suit and tie than in jeans and boots. I have come to appreciate that my students and colleagues get a kick out of the change of pace I offer for our eclectic department. That and I just freaking love ties and pocket squares.
    Thanks to all of you for making this such a cool place to browse for the past 2 or so years that I have been aware of it.
    Ted

    Hi , I am Josi, and I am here because I need to declutter my wardrobe, throw things away and buy new ones :) I want a fresh start in the summer and what's better than buying new clothes and redefining my style? I hope to find new ideas and suggestions here. Let's start!

    Evening all. Im a 49 year old born and bred Londoner, and something of a limited edition in that I still live in the city, as opposed to most of my brethren who now reside in the shires. Im clothes nuts; anything from Crombie Boating Blazers to Callugi Gianelli woven shirts, to Edward Green shoes. Ps if anyone knows where I can pick up a decent original Hawaiian Shirt Id be pleased to know- not ebay.
    I've been to Portobello plus Camden Stables market and can't find a damn thing any good- to anyone than can oblige your rewards shall be great in heaven

    Hi. Wow. Um, I'm currently at the bottom of a VERY long list. I'm also not the best in online introductions BUT I'm great at one-on-one responses.

    Located in the US and a long, long time reader of SF.N, and an even longer consumer of well made leather goods, but only recently compelled to post a review after a harrowing experience with a manufacturer (Jack Georges) who used to make stuff we received compliments on (even internationally) but now has become a very, very poor representative of the reputation they've begun to actively ply online. This has been a widespread trend across several manufacturers/brands, and I am tired of watching PRICES SKYROCKET while QUALITY PLUMMETS. So... I've begun to articulate what others can see with their own eyes and likely also lament. Feel free to share your own horror stories! "Made of Italian leather" but (deep in the bag on a tiny, tiny tag) "Made in China"? Better: have to turn that $300 or $400 shoe inside out to discover its pedigree? It's not the location but the quality, and the fact that even the labels sell you on one idea and HIDE the origin. With the widespread appearance of plastic "hardware" on expensive designer shoes and bags, and false stitching along insoles (J.Crew) and soles (John Varvatos!) I have had enough!

    Well, that's likely a good enough intro to me.

    Hi I'm owthere from the SF Bay area. I am new to the forum and joined because I found a thread for dive watch band that is special and unique. I love the outdoor lifestyle here in the bay area and all the activities that are available. If it wasn't for the fault lines and earthquakes, it would be almost perfect.

    I am Karan and I work with a brand call High On Leather. I have great knowledge about leather crafting and tanning. What kind of bags are suitable for which purpose. I also know a lot about marketplaces like ebay and amazon and new online marketing techniques. Thank you so much for a warm welcome.

    Hello Gentlemen,

    I found this forum while researching Allen Edmond shoes. In general I have been wanting to spruce up my look. I'm 37, and hold down a pretty darn good job as a Network Engineer. A little over a year ago, I spotted Allen Edmonds shoes at Nordstroms. I fell in love with them. I immediately ponied up full price for the Fifth Avenue in Bourboun. Its a very a sleek shoe.

    I had an older Hugo Boss boot in black, and decided it was time for an upgrade on a black dress shoe. I got crazy lucky and found a Park Avenue on ebay for $35 that was basically new. Right after that I bought a pair of Olive Neumoks at full price.

    Anyways, shoes have become important to me. But I'm also wanting to spruce up the rest of my wardrobe. I think a fully tailored Hugo Boss suit will be next on my agenda.

    Good evening Gentlemen

    From South Africa and very new to style and fashion. It's been a tough year and have decided the best way to face it is with a fresh start on many levels. I was directed here from a firearms forum.

    Style has never been high on my priorities, but as I grow older (32) I have come to see the mistake this is. Here to learn and improve.

    Hello, Gentlemen.

    My first post, I just wanted to say hello. I wasn't sure where to post this, so I posted it here in the n00b thread (hehe). I've been a lurker for a few years, but finally decided to sign-up so I could give some of you gentlemen some of my money (meaning, I'm interested in purchasing some things in B&S).

    Thank you for your time and I know I will enjoy my time journeying towards sartorial improvement.

    Hello all,

    I've spent the last couple of years trying to gain a better understanding of men's clothes and gradually creating a new wardrobe. I've also spent quite a bit of time working in retail during the last year and I recently graduated college. I'm looking forward to continuing to expand my wardrobe and knowledge of men's clothes through this forum.

    Hi just joined but been reading for some time.
    I live in England,don't have much money lol and work for the NHS.
    I indulge my passion for English shoes once in a while but mostly dress them casual.
    My other unhealthy passion is Les Paul guitars and have been known to rock a bit in my time.
    I think Fred Astaire had style nailed, and for all those on here who don't like pleated trousers he kind of proves you wrong.
    In short, long live George Cleverley, Gaziano & Girling, Edward Green and Crockett & Jones - hand grades of course [​IMG]

    Well, to put it short, I'm a young man in the northern US looking to dress better than I currently do and get a few bits of advice along the way.
    I am okay at playing acoustic guitar and have a modest addiction to french culture.

    Hey Peeps,

    i'm Wayne and I hail from Texas. Now living in a small town in Germany were I married. I studied fashion about 20 years ago but never did anything with it. Though, I have used my training in other creative branches. For the past 2 years, I have been studying and producing mens hats. Now, at 43 I am considering taking a big risk and start up with mens fashion.

    Were I live is a big disconnect from the world of style and fashion so I have signed up here to hopeful have intelligent conversations on the psychology of why we wear what we do. In hope to better my understanding of what men are searching for. I would use myself as an example but my lack of style is too extreme to use as a base. As a designer, I understand the clothing and all that goes into it and when I choose to "dress" I select with careful choices. But since I now live in a society where "style" is a cyclops you often find me in poor choices of clothing.

    But now that I am returning to the fashion world again, with a few extra pounds and a better understanding of what fashion and style really means (not like my unrealistic ideas when I was in design school).I am hoping to target a more mature audience as I think we have moved into an interesting age of man. Meaning, there are the rebels, the punks, the new romantics, even club kids that have all grown up and well, we don't want to be who we were before and we don't want to be someones grand dad but find that common denominator in who we are now and reflect that with of style choices...so. i will be asking lots of questions from time to time and hopefully not babbling like I am now!

    Wayne
